Tenable has released version 3.2 of the Security Center. This new version includes several major new features:
- templated reporting with many new pre-configured reports
- data export via spreadsheet for any interactive query
- per user Active Directory authentication
The Security Center is available for Red Hat ES3 and ES4. Existing Tenable Security Center customers can upgrade to version 3.2 if their maintenance is up to date. New customers should contact the Tenable sales group for pricing.
This release enhances the reporting options available to all users. When creating a report, users can make use of the existing 3.0 report wizard or select from a list of pre-configured reports. Report templates exist for many basic reports, such as all missing Microsoft Patches, and also advanced reports such as SANS Top 20 and PCI.
Data Export via Spreadsheets
Any user of the Security Center can export their vulnerability, compliance, IDS event or log data to a .csv spreadsheet file. Any tool which summarizes ports, lists vulnerabilities, lists logs, and so on, can have the output saved into a spreadsheet. This data can be saved at any point a user is navigating through the Security Center's GUI.
Security Center 3.2 can be configured to authenticate to any LDAP server, such as a Microsoft Active Directory server. Once this is enabled, any existing user (or new user) can be set to authenticate via LDAP. When adding a new user, the Security Center will also pre-populate the user's data such as full name, phone number and organization.
